Fútbol Club Barcelona's 2001-02 season was to be the last but one under the guidance of Joan Gaspart as President and the single season of management by Carles Rexach at Barcelona. It was also the first season after long-serving captain Josep Guardiola moved on from the club. Veteran players like Sergi Barjuán, Abelardo Fernández and the talismanic Rivaldo would play their final years at the club before a summer of change.
The club attained a respectable fourth place in the league, 11 points below eventual winners Valencia, as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League. Patrick Kluivert was top scorer in all competitions, with 25 goals.
The departures of Núñez and van Gaal were nothing compared to that of Luís Figo. As well as club vice-captain, Figo had become a cult hero and was considered by Catalans to be one of their own. Barça fans were distraught by Figo's decision to join arch-rivals Real Madrid, and during subsequent visits to the Camp Nou, he was given an extremely hostile reception.
Upon his first return a piglet's head and a full bottle of whiskey were thrown at him from the crowd. President Núñez was replaced by Joan Gaspart in 2000, and the three years he was in charge saw the club decline and managers came and went; van Gaal served a second term. Gaspart did not inspire confidence off the field either and in 2003, he and van Gaal resigned.
